I am so glad that I am not affected by this monstrously evil and sad affliction. I feel so sorry for those who do. I really hope that effective drugs and therapy can help these people who aree no longer just teenage girls but also boys and men moreso as our society drives the message home that stick skinny is ideal.
I hope ddoctor's find new ways to help people overcome this horrific illness one day soon.

Anorexia occurs most likely in teens. It can also be related to depression, so it is very important to identify this disorder at an early level so early treatment could be delivered. Antidepressant drugs almost always have its side effects, and some of them can create a negative impact on patientsí lives. Like Paxil, for instance, it has been associated with numerous complications.

I've been on Effexor from only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
